Holidays Around The World - Candlelight Processional Special Event at Epcot
During the holidays, Epcot theme park is transformed into an international celebration of Yuletide traditions filled with festive decorations and live entertainment. From Holidays Around The World to Candlelight Processional, delight in the sights and sounds of the season.
Candlelight Processional is a special holiday event held nightly at the American Gardens Theatre in Epcot theme park as part of Holidays Around The World. The event retells the stirring story of Christmas with a special celebrity narrator accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and a mass choir.
Candlelight Processional is a terrific way to get in the Christmas spirit and to share the magic of the season with your family and friends. The event has become an essential family tradition for many Guests — once you experience it, you will be inspired to share it every year with the ones you love.
This unforgettable spectacle is held on select nights during the holiday season and, due to its popularity, often fills up quickly. To ensure you have a seat, you may participate in one of our Candlelight Dinner Packages* that includes a delicious dinner, a Guaranteed seating section for the Candlelight Processional, and pre-arranged fireworks viewing.
It is included with your park admission, you just have to queue in the 'regular' line, but you can book tickets for the show combined with a dinner package at certain Epcot restaurants, and that guarantees you a seat (although not necessarily a good seat as you still have to queue up with everyone else who has a dinner package ticket).
The Candlelight Processional is performed three times per night (5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m.), and guaranteed seating is available by booking a breakfast, lunch or dinner Candlelight Processional Dining Package at select Epcot eateries. Availability is limited and advance reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit. Bookings for Candlelight Processional Dining Packages will begin on July 3.
Following the show, shop "around the world" to find the perfect holiday gift with a variety fragrances, specialty handbags, ornaments, toys, dolls, jewelry and stocking stuffers available at merchandise locations across Future World and World Showcase. And don’t miss the new, limited-time nighttime spectacular, Epcot Forever, debuting at Epcot this October.
